The Fourth of July is supposed to be the holiday to celebrate our independence from a tyrannical police state. But sadly, in the name of safety, too many people are willing to throw away their rights and privacy. The DUI check point is a great example. 

PurpleHat1991 was stopped at a DUI checkpoint on the Fourth of July, and felt he was being pulled over and harassed for no reason. He had broken no laws, and the police had no reason to suspect him of committing any crime.

Still, the police intimidated him, detained him, and searched his car without just cause or a warrant. All on Independence Day. How beautifully ironic.  

He rightfully made sure to record his encounter with the police, and now his video is going viral, already garnering over 2 million views since debuting July 4th evening.

Sadly, it has become near tradition for at least one fireworks disaster to occur on the 4th of July. This year, the fireworks demonstrations at Simi Valley experienced a malfunction, causing the entire display to go off at once. Camstack1 was only 50 feet away from the explosion, but escaped unharmed.

The web’s coolest blind guy, Tommy Edison, continues to trend online. His latest video is very interesting as his fans asked him to discuss his art and drawing skills.

Tommy explains that as he is blind from birth everything to him is 3D, since touch is the primary sense he uses to ‘see’ objects in detail. So drawing something on the flat space of a piece of paper in inherently difficult. Besides for the fact that he’s, ya know, blind. 

Surprisingly, he does a pretty decent job drawing a cat, a car, and even a self-portrait.
